No; redundancy has to be established in the first instance.More Button

I hope the Deputy will.More Button

IN COMMITTEE ON FINANCE. - INTOXICATING LIQUOR BILL, 1927—THIRD STAGE.

I am open to consider any suggestion from the Deputy, or any Deputy, but I have not much hope myself that I could arrive at a satisfactory definition. I think it is eminently a matter that should be ...More Button

Leaving no provision for the sale of intoxicating liquor on any week day or Saturday.More Button

I am pointing out how fortunate it is that we are discussing the deletion of the word “ten.”More Button

I submit, sir, that they are even more so. On this question of 10 o'clock opening as against 9 o'clock opening I have not very much to say. The present hours are in the county boroughs from 9 a.m. t...More Button

We will attend to that.More Button
